Daniel Levy, the CEO of Tottenham Hotspur, is overjoyed that the club is steadily overcoming Jose Mourinho’s pessimism.
Daniel Levy, the chairman of Tottenham Hotspur, was pictured in the stands celebrating his team’s victory over Wolves.
On the final whistle, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy grinned down from the director’s box – and rightly so. On Tuesday, one of his most difficult transfer windows will come to a close, with Harry Kane still on board and his team leading the Premier League.
On top of that, he’s made a few acquisitions and relocated some of the remaining deadwood.
And, as if that wasn’t enough, arch rivals Arsenal are currently at the bottom of the table!
Even the rumor that he approved Moussa Sissoko’s transfer without realizing the Hornets were their own opponents this weekend may damper his enthusiasm.
After all, after opening up an early chance for the visitors, the midfielder’s two key contributions were to lob one shot high into the bleachers and thump another frustrated clearance straight between Nuno Espirito Santo’s shoulders.
Son Heung-min, on the other hand, deserves a different kind of pat on the back.
He scored the winner for the second time in the first three games to secure yet another “1-0 to Tottenham” three-pointer on his 200th Premier League appearance.
As if Spurs fans aren’t already shoving it in Arsenal’s faces enough.
His free-kick was intended to entice the forwards who had lined up to assault the goal while also heading slightly inside the far post.
Watford goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann took too long to decide whether to stick or twist, and when he finally did, he was grabbing at air as the ball slipped past him and sailed untouched into the net.
The damage had already been done, so a good save from Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s deflected low shot in the second half, followed by a sharper stop from Harry Kane from a corner, was little compensation.
Tottenham looked excellent for their lead once they got their noses in front, and not at all “Spursy” – to use the traditional slur for previous wobbles.
Perhaps some of Levy’s stoicism in the boardroom has finally trickled down to the field.
Davinson Sanchez appeared to have regained some faith. Japhet Tanganga was back, demonstrating the promise that had been seen in him. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
